Tupperware's Influence in the Postwar Era

In a PBS interview with University of Minnesota historian Elaine Tyler May, Professor May discusses women and work in the postwar era. A social historian, Professor May has written several social histories, including Homeward Bound: American Families in the Cold War Era and Barren in the Promised Land: Childless Americans and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Tupperware was the pioneer in home-based businesses, allowing women to extend their homemaker role. It was one of several occupations that homemakers could do at home, in their spare time, that became careers. They could sell products to women through their homes or friendship networks, and they could make money; they could become part of a business operation.
